This puts St George's in the top third of all universities and second highest in London in the rankings.  

Professor Jane Saffell, Deputy Principal (Education) said: "I'm delighted to see that our students' opinions have resulted in this improvement."

"It will be a boost to all across St George’s who work hard for our students. Just as we attend deeply to disappointing results so we must celebrate good news like this even as the improvement work continues.”

The results are based on the responses of more than 15,000 undergraduates rating their university across 22 measures, which include environment, welfare and community as well as academic experience.

There is a one year time lag between data collection and publication, so the data shown in the Student Experience Survey 2017 was collected between October 2015 and June 2016.

In all, 15,876 full-time undergraduate students across all HEIs completed this 2017 survey with 61 respondents from St George’s taking part.

St George’s rated especially highly for good community atmosphere, good library facilities, and good security, and also scored highly for helpful/interested staff, high quality lecturers, good extra-curricula activities/societies and good support/welfare.
